You’re here because you want to make a difference for children with cancer and their families.
By donating to Redkite you will be providing a guiding hand when all seems lost, a steady support when the world is spinning around them and a comforting voice when they need someone to talk to.
Redkite does this by giving families access to information and support, counselling, financial assistance and bereavement support when they are facing the most difficult time of their life.
We also provide support packs upon diagnosis and fund social workers and musical therapists in the hospitals. Our team of Redkite social workers is here to help families through this difficult journey outside of the hospital offering emotional support.
Having a child with cancer is something you never want to experience but today 3 families will have been told this is now their reality.
Where Will your donations go?
Financial Assistance Program
The Financial Assistance Program ensures families can pay for bills, food and fuel. The support can start at the time of diagnosis and last as long as a year after the child’s treatment has finished.
Counselling & Social Work
Our support is flexible, confidential and free to anyone connected to a child with cancer. We can help families with navigating difficult conversations, we can work with their child’s treating team and can even advocate on their behalf.
The world of childhood cancer can be complex, confusing and hard to navigate. Redkite helps families connect to the services they need and troubleshoot practical problems.
Information & Book Club
Entering the world of childhood cancer comes with a lot of unknowns for families. Unknown terminology, unknown feelings, or known situations. Various resources and Redkite’s Book Club can help families better understand.
We know a cancer diagnosis can be sudden and that families often find themselves in hospital with little or no time to prepare. Redkite’s Red Bags are packed full of the things that families might not think of when rushing out the door to the hospital.
Redkite Social Workers regularly facilitate Connect Groups for parents, careers, or grandparents, for them to connect with others that understand what they are going through.
Donate today and have a lasting impact on a family facing childhood cancer.
